This broccoli cauliflower salad recipe makes a welcoming addition to any vegan party or weeknight meal. I know my vegetarian friends would love this recipe.
Broccoli Cauliflower Salad
- 4 slices center-cut bacon (preferably nitrate-free)
- 4 cups chopped broccoli
- 3-4 cups chopped cauliflower
- 1/2 cup glazed pecans
- 1/4 cup finely-chopped red onion
- 1/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 Tbsp. vinegar
- 1/4 tsp. salt
Fry bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Make sure broccoli and cauliflower florets are cut into small, bite-sized pieces. This not only makes the salad more appealing, it helps the flavors meld better. Place broccoli, cauliflower, pecans, onions and cranberries in a salad. Bowl. Toss. Whisk together the dressing ingredients. Pour over the broccoli-cauliflower mixture, and toss to coat the salad evenly with dressing. When ready to serve, crumble the bacon over the broccoli cauliflower salad.
